aleksi virta – “..meets torsti” (Monotonik Netlabel)

aleksi--monotonik-cover-mtk123Universal Downbeat Trip | Oh my god! Grab this amazing space funk release from the shelfes of Monotonik. With it you get smooth running downbeats, a funky bag full of organs and some of that reggae dub flavor you like so much. This smoked out space joint will make you smile, forget what you was working on, just take it and leave to the dancefloor.


aleksi virta - "o tema de viagem especial" (MP3)
aleksi virta - "whirlwind pistols dub" (MP3)

I don't know why, but I like voice samples in music tracks, babbling some weird sentences like "Are you rrready to accept my domination?!?". And aleksi virta does so, too. He found some sources talking about the universe, space men, whatever... Just listen to "outer edge intro", you'll hear what I mean.

Together with the melodic grooves, the offbeat rhythmics in tracks like "whirlwind pistols dub" or the bossa nova-inspired happy-grooves in "o tema de viagem especial" you get a wonderful release. This will be my favorite in the downbeat genre for a while!

A damn cool space trip into the world of melodic downbeats...

PS: Thanks to our writer Martin aka 020200 for the hint...

  • this is an absolute CLASSIC. one of my all-time favorite netaudio releases. in fact, i think this was the release that made me fall in love with monotonik.

    does anyone know if aleksi virta ever made any other recordings?? its too bad the best artists seem to disappear without a trace....

  • hey travis... that was exactly my thought. i searched for an artist-website, i searched for other releases on discogs: nothing! and it's an old release. i wish there would be more.

  • Through the magic of the Wayback Machine, I have found an archived copy of the page linked to in the Monotonik release page:

    Somewhat amusing.
